Centre for Digital Banking and Finance - Three Day Fintech Leadership Programme

LIBF has designed this program to deliver in your market or specifically tailored for on-site delivery in your company.

  • Learn about the latest trends and implications for your company
  • Engage directly with the leadership of disruptors, digital leaders of incumbent, regulators, and investors
  • Cut through the noise regarding disruptive technologies and develop your own instincts
  • Faculty of top-notch academics and industry practitioners

Our program reflects action-oriented pragmatism, not hype. We help you understand what will actually work – both as a pragmatic business case and as solution for consumer needs – needs that, perhaps, your clients do not yet know they have? Our program offers solid facts and data, gathered and analysed with academic rigour. Come and hear what it is actually shaping the industry by talking to fintechs, incumbent banks, regulators and investors.

Made in London, not Silicon Valley. The tech giants that have come out of Silicon Valley, Amazon, Google, Facebook and Amazon, strike fear into many financial services professionals. Can any firm that is not part of that ecosystem compete? Of course! The fintech revolution is based in London, one of the world’s great financial centres, for good reason. It is where expertise, money, and know-how come together to build the financial services ecosystem of the future.

This program will help you build the following capabilities:

  • Read industry trends accurately, focusing on what truly matters and piercing through the hype
  • Understand the force fields between investors, challengers, and incumbents
  • Develop playbooks for the dance between incumbents and challengers in financial services
  • Derive implications for action in your company
  • Outline your personal digital development journey

Our three day program is designed for:

  • CEOs and Board Members of financial services firms who wish to introduce transformational changes in your organisation and embrace innovation into their business models
  • Senior leaders of transformation, customer-facing, or back-office functions who are shaping their organisation’s response to industry opportunities and threats
  • Senior leaders of strategy, planning, or business development  

    Our overall structure for the week starts with exploring the megatrends and their implications, to then take deep dives in specific business models, functional themes, and enabling technologies. Throughout the program you will be invited to reflect on how to internalise the learnings in your own practice as a leader, culminating in the development of your own digital development and action plan.
